Preface: the environmental mapping and analysis program (EnMAP) mission: preparing for its scientific exploitation
The imaging spectroscopy mission EnMAP aims to assess the state and evolution of terrestrialandaquaticecosystems,examinethemultifacetedimpactsofhumanactivities,andsupport a sustainable use of natural resources. Once in operation (scheduled to launch in 2019), EnMAP will provide high-quality observations in the visible to near-infrared and shortwave-infrared spectral range. The scientiﬁc preparation of the mission comprises an extensive science program. This special issue presents a collection of research articles, demonstrating the potential of EnMAP for various applications along with overview articles on the mission and software tools developed within its scientiﬁc preparation.
